experimental dessert with pumpkin cake

experimental sweets experimental sweets experimental sweets experimental sweets This is so 3 weeks ago. I made this dessert for Thanksgiving at my mom’s house.┬áIt was kind of experimental and I was just hoping it would turn out well. I figured a bunch of sweet things together have to taste decent, right?!

I used this pumpkin cake recipe for the cake portion. When it was done baking, I took off parts of the top of the cake and poured in some condensed milk (maybe 1/2 – 1 cup) all over. Next, I put those top layers back on. Then, I made some whipped cream and lathered that all over the top of the cake. I crushed honey graham crackers and english toffee and then sprinkled those all over the top of the whipped cream.

I crossed my fingers it would taste good with that random little combos I did and thankfully it did! Or maybe I just love all things sweet that it tasted fine to me and everyone else was too nice to tell me otherwise.

I did use that same pumpkin cake recipe for Soul’s birthday cake, but instead of raisins, we used chocolate chips. Also, instead of whipped cream, we did buttercream frosting. I love all things pumpkin and since it’s the season for it, we’re going crazy with it. Do you love pumpkin filled foods too?

    I’m from the southern hemisphere and down here pumpkin is only ever a savoury item, not used in cakes and the like and I just can’t get my head around the idea of it in a cake! I have tried to get over it, but just can’t ….

    Hi Rubyellen!

    This looks so crazemazing, I wish I had it in front of me right now so I could eat it all up! I too am from the Southern hemisphere but I have no problem with accepting pumpkin in any delicous form, be it sweet or savoury. So darn good! Thanks for posting :-)

    I was just wondering what the ‘English toffee’ part is – I’m English and I’m just curious as to what you guys over there would call toffee?
